It’s shaping up to be a great week to be a frugal gamer. Maybe not as great as a Steam sale week, but pretty close.
The Weekend Deal this week are two great indie games. First up is Hotline Miami at %50 off. This top down shooter is reminiscent of an older simpler age in video gaming and is an absolute steal at $4.99 USD. Pick up your copy here. Next we have FTL: Faster Than Light priced at $5.99 USD (40% off regular price). This rogue like space exploration game is great to play in short bursts but be warned, its extremely addictive. I personally supported this game back when it was on Kickstarter and I don’t regret it at all. I highly recommend picking up this game here.
GreenMan Gaming is running a Winter Voucher week by releasing a new 25% off code that will be valid between 1200 GMT Friday December 7th and 1200 GMT Friday December 14th.

GMG is running a few major sales. I recommend picking up Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition at $4.98 USD, Bastion at$4.49 USD, and Hitman: Blood Money, Tropico 3, World of Goo, Defcon: Everybody Dies all at $1.99 USD each. These prices do not include the extra %25 coupon that can be found in the link above. Most of these games should be eligible for the extra discount. These games are a mixed bag of Steam and GMG Capsule downloader, so read carefully. Check out our review of Bastion here.
Get Games is running a sci fi sale with games up to 75% off. Titles of interest include Deus Ex: Human Revolution for Steam at $7.49USD and Bioshock 2 for $4.99 USD. Check out the full sale here. Read our review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution here and our review of Bioshock 2 here.
Finally, GoG.com is running a Myst themed weekend promo, knocking down the price by %60 for DRM free downloads of the Myst series, Uru Complete Chronicles, and The Manhole: Masterpiece Edition. The Myst series is a video gaming classic that should be considered a must play for every adventure and puzzle game enthusiast. Check out the sale here.
